ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) — An Alaska judge on Thursday refused to block a state investigation into whether Gov. Sarah Palin abused her power when she fired her public safety commissioner this summer.
Judge Peter Michalski threw out the lawsuit filed by five Republican state legislators who said the investigation had been tainted by partisan politics and was being manipulated to damage Palin shortly before the Nov. 4 presidential election.
The investigator leading that probe, retired prosecutor Steven Branchflower, is due to release his findings Friday.
On the issue of with holding emails, Sarah Palin has been slapped with a lawsuit.
Abuse of power and secrecy, it's a Republican thing.
